    GAMEDAY - Round 15

    NO LATE CHANGES FINAL INTERCHANGES Melbourne: James Harmes, Christian Petracca, Dom Tyson, Josh Smith St Kilda: Luke Dunstan, Hunter Clark, Paddy McCartin, Darragh Joyce
  2. Had a look at the question last night and it looks like the last interstate Friday Night game we played was in 2011 vs WCE https://afltables.com/afl/stats/games/2011/111820110428.html We've barely had a Friday night game since then and all at the 'G

    Injury List - Season 2018

    Ch7 clearly not reading the original article : http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2018-04-26/petracca-to-miss-due-to-dog-bite Misson said Petracca would be monitored over the next few days, but was set to miss just one week. “The doctor felt it needed a decent wash-out in surgery, and the important thing is that the wound needs to stay open for three days to guarantee that that infection’s gone before they stitch it up,” he said. “Unfortunately, those three days coincide with the game, and the doctor actually wants him to stay in hospital over the weekend, just to make sure that the infection’s gone.” Today is Monday, so once the infection's gone, the finger is stitched back up. Seems part of the routine from what I can see.

    Daniher under the Pump; Will Destroy Us

    Damn the defeatist attitude on this forum is becoming unbearable this week. Yes, we have been shizen for most of the last 2 games but need I remind everyone that Richmond are on top of the ladder? OMac just kept Riewoldt quiet for most of the last game, despite some clearly excellent delivery from the Tigers midfield. Daniher may get off the leash once or twice, but he won't be the difference. OMac will be on this week again.

    Changes vs Hawthorn R4

    I don't want to get into semantics, LH, but I don't know where you are getting the 8 days from? We play the Dawks this Sunday April 15, Anzac Eve on April 24 and Bombres on April 29th, thats 3 games in 2 full weeks with a 9 days break in the middle. We do need to manage this better than last years horrid 3 x 6 day breaks to have a chance to consolidate our spot early. I suspect we will see more rotation through the midfield, barring injuries, and more changes between VFL and seniors, depending on form. The MC under Goodwin does not seem likely to change for the sake of change but I agree, player management should be paramount over the next 3 rounds. Looking at the VFL yesterday and over the next 2 weeks, there will be plenty pushing there claims if form warrants.

    Changes vs Hawthorn R4

    There will be some management going on, but 3 games in 8 days is pushing it. We have 9 days between our Round 4 and 5 before playing the next Sunday. So 3 games in 14 days, with the one against Ess being our 5 day break vs their 4 1/2 day break. It's what we signed up for in order to get the Anzac Eve match. Hopefully the footy department have learnt from last year when we played 3 games in 12 days

    Post Match Discussion: JLT #2 vs St. Kilda

    Watch Goodwin's press conference http://www.melbournefc.com.au/video/2018-03-08/media-conference-simon-goodwin-postmatch. Apparently Harmes had a knock to the head at training last week, so they are taking the cautious approach before round 1.

    Speaking of Robbo, he's just won a flag at Doveton off his own boot in the Southern League: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/localfooty/exafl-star-kicks-the-matchwinner-as-doveton-eagles-grab-premiership/news-story/8c061172b6f6aa05274ca3ea576cb514

    Dump Darwin

    Agree on the humidity point and that was clear from the match against Freo last year. The Darwin game has now been a part of our fixture for the past 8 seasons and the club's fitness staff have clearly learnt a few things about recovery from the match. I honestly would prefer we played all our home games at the MCG but at this stage, the club is making the most of the opportunity to grow the team brand outside of the confines of the Melbourne metro area while providing Darwin with some AFL exposure.

    Dump Darwin

    I am a supporter of the Darwin match for a couple reasons. 1. it provides sponsorship dollars with the NT government and helps the club grow while we consolidate membership. The back of jumper sponsorship delays shows that this is still an issue for the club 2. From a fixture POV, If we did not play the games in NT we would be playing 2 more away games interstate. We would not be playing four games in a row at the MCG, we would be more likely to be playing the Crows as the G followed by Port in Adelaide. It's a necessary evil in the meantime while we continue to build the club coffers. Once we get more exposure as a club and better fixtures, the NT games will be less of a requirement in the future. Plus, The Bulldogs are still playing in Cairns http://www.afl.com.au/match-centre/2017/18/wb-v-gcfc
